Revolutionizing the diagnosis of serious disease
... sound waves at much higher frequencies, typically around 100-1000 times higher to probe bodies.
The Nottingham researchers are aiming to produce a miniaturised
version of this technology, with transducers so tiny that you could fit 500 across the width of one human hair which would produce sound waves at freq...

...ical innovations in urological treatment and training.
Minimally invasive surgery has revolutionised the diagnosis and therapy of diseases by using miniaturised
treatment and surgical procedures. However, minimally invasive surgery has largely deprived the surgeon of the sense of feel that open surgery provide...

Now, FISH on a Chip for Quicker, Cost-effective Cancer Diagnosis
... Canadian researchers have for the first time miniaturised
an important diagnostic test for cancer, and automated it onto a microfluidic chip .
The new technology, developed by University of Alberta re...
A Patented Device for Rapid Diagnosis of Diseases
...ing their application for the detection and treatment of colorectal cancer.
The device incorporates advances in micro-nanotechnology whereby, in a miniaturised
laboratory mode, the required reagents are mixed with a sample of the patient. Thanks to miniaturisation, the result of the analysis is obtained in a ...
New miniaturised chip dramatically reduces time taken for DNA analysis
A team of researchers at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona has developed new miniature sensors for analysing DNA. The sensors have the same size and thickness as a fingernail and reduce the time needed to identify DNA chains to several minutes or a few hours, depending on each chain. These sens...
Quick microchip test for dangerous antibiotic resistant bacteria
...d animals, where we were looking at them as possible reservoirs of infection which can transmit disease back into farm animals", says Dr Anjum.
microarray chips were developed by studying and identifying the dangerous genes from samples of gut bacteria including the diarrhoea-causing E. coli b...
